3. Connect to a VPN server location

In the Terminal window, run this command:

expressvpn connect

Run “expressvpn connect” to connect to a VPN server location.

If you are connecting for the first time, ExpressVPN will use the Smart Location feature to select a server location, which is recommended to you based on factors such as speed and proximity.

If this is not your first time connecting, ExpressVPN will connect to the server location you were most recently connected to.

Once you are successfully connected, you will see the “Connected to…” message.

Note: A single ExpressVPN subscription can be used simultaneously on five devices, regardless of platform. If you try to use more than five devices simultaneously on one subscription, you will see a message that says, “You’ve exceeded ExpressVPN’s device usage limit for this subscription.”

Switch to a different VPN protocol

Important: Disconnect from the VPN before switching to another protocol.

VPN protocols are the methods by which your device connects to a VPN server. For the best experience, ExpressVPN recommends using the Automatic protocol option. This is selected by default and automatically picks the protocol most appropriate for your network.

In some cases, switching to a different protocol can help you achieve faster connection speeds.

To switch to Lightway – TCP, run the following command:

expressvpn protocol lightway_tcp

To switch to Lightway – UDP, run the following command:

expressvpn protocol lightway_udp

To switch to OpenVPN – TCP, run the following command:

expressvpn protocol tcp

To switch to OpenVPN – UDP, run the following command:

expressvpn protocol udp

You will see the message, “Protocol changed.”

You will see the message: “Protocol changed.”

To use the Automatic option, run this command:

expressvpn protocol auto
